A little bit about us

We launched En Point to support young professionals in starting meaningful careers that allow them to connect their passion to work.

Through our proven process and online learning portal, we have guided 5000+ individuals through this journey and set them up for sustainable results. Working with client organizations, such as the Black Business Initiative, EduNova, Dalhousie University, Saint Mary’s University, and NSCC, we design and deliver mentorship programs to support their students’, players’, or members’ needs.
